Animal Crossing: Wild World/Tom Nook's Shops

From StrategyWiki, the video game walkthrough and strategy guide wiki

Aside from your home, Tom Nook's shop is one of the most important places in your town. Every day, Tom Nook will get a new shipment of items for you to purchase: furniture, tools, flowers and trees, and stationary. Tom Nook is by no means your sole supplier of goods, but you'll probably buy more stuff from him than from anyone else.

Another reason to frequent Tom Nook's store is to sell items. Nook will buy almost anything you can bring him. Bring fish, bugs, fruit, fossils, clothing, furniture or anything else you collect, and he will pay Bells for them.

As a businessman, you can't expect Nook to work out of a shack forever. As you buy and sell from him, he'll occasionally upgrade his shop. It will become bigger, nicer, and have a larger selection of items. The downside to this upgrade is that Tom Nook closes his store for a day. That's an entire day devoid of purchasing or selling. On these days, you can visit any other town online and simply shop at their store.

  • All of Tom Nook's Shops are open from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm every day of the week.
  • Nook buys items from you at any time when his store is open.
  • He will tell you current turnip prices and buy turnips from you Monday-Saturday (His turnip prices change at noon)
  • He also sells you items whenever his shops are open.

On certain special days (which are announced on the bulletin board) you can earn up to five points per 100 bells you spend. There are different membership tiers you can earn with points.
